Travel Outside the U.S. Self Reporting Letter

While there are NO reported cases of Coronavirus connected to any of our school districts at this time, District 207 is asking all parents to share with the school district if you or your student has recently traveled overseas or plans to travel overseas prior to the end of the school year. This is being done out of an abundance of caution. However, in the event someone connected to the schools has a confirmed case of Coronavirus, it will be important to have this information on hand to share with health officials to help District 207 make the most informed decisions about the status of operating our schools.

The District has created a form for parents to use to make it easy to report this information which is located at:

Note that per federal and state guidelines, students or family members returning from mainland China and/or students or family members who have travelled to or had stopovers in countries that are considered Level 3 by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention or higher should self-quarantine for 14 days. If you are in this situation, please contact the Cook County Department of Public Health (708) 633-4000 or 1-800-889-3931 to work through the details of self-quarantine and contact your child’s school health office to report the self-quarantine.

Maine South – 847-692-8199

Maine West – 847-803-5751

Information about the current Level 3 countries can be found on the CDC website: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers/index.html

In the meantime, please know that our facilities teams are actively cleaning and sanitizing high touch places in the buildings such as handrails, doorknobs, faucet handles, etc.

It is also important to know that the district is reviewing plans for school closings should the need arise. If that becomes necessary, the district will work in coordination with local and state health departments.

Please help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses by taking these preventative actions:

  • Cover your cough or sneeze
  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
  • Use alcohol-based hand sanitizer 
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands
  • See your doctor if you have a fever, cough, body aches, and fatigue
  • Stay home and limit contact with others if you are sick

Administrators will continue to monitor the situation and are committed to making sure students, parents and staff are informed.
